An update on the breeding season from the Derrypatrick herd


Derrypatrick herd Manager, Michael McManus, joins Catherine Egan on this week’s Beef Edge podcast to give an update on the breeding season.

There is 100% AI used in the herd and Michael describes how sires are selected and what sires are being used this year. ­­

It has been a very difficult year on the farm managing grass like other farms around the country and he highlights how some of the silage ground had to be grazed and will be cut at the end of June.

Michael then gives an overview of how last year’s cattle performed and the plan for the rest of the year.
